Any info on Goldrush in NJ?

I am looking for any info I can get on Goldrush in NJ. They came highly recommended by the breeder of my last Golden (who does not have any litters coming up) and are members of the Garden State Golden Club as well as the NJ Pine Barrens Golden Club. I have my name on lists for their litters that are due to be born this week, but I've started to hear some things about them and really want to make the best decision possible. If you have any info (positive or negative) I would really appreciate it.

Also, has anyone heard anything about Goldilocks Goldens in PA?

Thank you for any help.

Where are they located? This is what I found from a very quick google search. I'm sure if you searched more in depth you would find info.

Consumer complaints about Gold Rush Kennels, Princeton, NJ

Does she have certifications for hips, elbows, heart and eyes for her parents?

We got our Golden from Goldilocks and we had positive experience with the breeder. She provides all 4 heath certificates. All their Goldens looks happy and healthy. You can take a look at our Griffyn who just turned 6 month.

Goodluck

I would never buy a puppy that was not guaranteed. Breeders know that we owners would never return our beloved puppies so many of their guarantees are meaningless. You need a breeder that will refund your money-up to the price of the puppy-for Vet bills due to inherited defects. That's the guarantee we have for our two guys and, unfortuatwly, have had to use it twice!!!

Gold-Rush

Do not have time this second to write much but I have dogs
from Gold-Rush who have been breeding & showing goldens for
more than 40 years.
Also looking up Goldilocks, many (at least 85%) on the OFA
database go back to Gold-Rush at least on one side.


Later I will write regarding breeders and owners and
their goldens.
This will include clearances, how to check and what they mean.

I know that Gold Rush has been breeding/showing Goldens for a long time and that they're a big name in the NE. I've never bought a dog from them myself, but my parents' Goldens and my new Golden are descendants of Gold Rush dogs and have been healthy and great dogs overall.

From what I understand, Gold Rush is a NE Golden powerhouse. Just do your homework, ask for clearances and guarantees (will they take back the dog if things don't work out?).

I believe so. He died way too young. Gold-Rush is in many lines.

The golden I had growing up was a gold rush dog. Very beautiful, great temperment and no real health problem (other than the random ear infections)
